NARS Summer Lights Face Palette ($74 CAD)
NARS Summer Lights Face Palette is the 2019 summer release from NARS. This palette contains 4 eyeshadows, 1 bronzer and 1 highlighter in a compact case with a beautiful mirror on the inside.
The NARS Summer Lights Face Palette contains a gelee type of formula that’s a hybrid between a powder and a cream. The consistency is softer than a traditional powder but not quite a cream.
The NARS Summer Lights Face Palette contains a mix of warm and cool tone shades. The highlighter and bronzers are warm, whereas the eyeshadows are a mix
I would say that Rainwater is a cool to neutral tone taupe shimmer, Hibiscus is a golden bronze, Papette is a matte rose brown and Hei is a shimmery eggplant.
From the face products, the highlighter is a medium champagne, ideal for medium skintones and the bronzer is a matte (natural finish) light tone brown. It’s a bit odd that the highlighter suits deeper skins than the bronzer does, creating a mismatch of shades but I feel like I can get away with it in between seasons.
Overall, this is a nice palette. I enjoy the texture of the shadows but the bronzer highlighter mismatch is a bit odd and for $75 CAD, this is not an exceptional palette. There are alternatives in the market for similar shades and textures so although nice, I would still save the money on this one
